Waiting for the Lion

Loaded with linkage today, folks.

So the most-magnificent Jodi Lee made my inbox happy with a home for "Tiny Fingers". The accepted-then-released story from the first run of Arkham Tales will appear in Jodi's forthcoming Ante Mortem. I know Natalie L. Sin will be among the TOC, so a big Huzzah! there.

(I don't know that I've squeezed more links into a single paragraph before...)

Robert Swartwood's novelette "Through the Guts of a Beggar" is available with nifty download options. You know you want to read it. (I do)

I'm trying to focus on edits this week...some for me ("Traveling Through the Dark" and a rewrite of "Keeper of the Dead"--I changed POV from 1st to 3rd and made the ending nasty), some for Strange Publications (Barry Napier's The Final Study of Cooper M. Reid). I also have some reading to do...but I won't let that particular cat slip out of the bag just yet.

Speaking of cats...it's almost the end of March; I wonder where that lion is hiding. Here kitty, kitty, kitty...

Congrats on finding the second home for your story. Sounds like an awesome anthology.

It sounds like you've got all sorts of good news! Congrats!!

I'll see you Ante Mortem, then (Also an Arkham Tales orphaned story.) I'm so excited!

God, PoV changes are the absolute worst to edit. More than once I've just thrown up my hands and rewritten the thing. Then again, you work with children, so you must be more patient than me.

Woot! For Ante Mortem and Cooper.

Barry - It just got "awesomer" (re: Katey's comment below)

Thanks, Hinny.

Katey - Rock and Roll. (And I think I might just rewrite the whole thing...eek)

Cate - Thanks! ;)

Thanks, Michael.

Andrea - is linky an adjective? If it is, I am.

Natalie - Don't worry; they're dead fingers.

Ann - ;)

Thanks, Danielle
